Drunk Driving Accidents
Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) ranks our state as 13th in the nation for the incidence of drunk driving, with over 4,000 people killed in alcohol related car crashes in the past five years.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a car accident caused by DUI, come to Klemick and Gampel, P.A. With extensive training and experience, we know what it takes to effectively pursue compensation for accident victims, and we truly care to help you at this difficult time. While the individual who caused your accident will probably face criminal prosecution, this is not likely to benefit you personally. The only way you can safeguard your right to a settlement is to file a personal injury lawsuit, and the first step is to complete our case evaluation form.
Recovering damages for your injuries depends on demonstrating that the driver’s negligence is the cause of your accident, which is not typically the primary challenge in a drink driving claim. You need a Miami personal injury attorney on your side to help you maximize the value of your settlement, as the insurance company is not likely to pay you more than the minimum they can get away with. We will fight to help you receive full compensation for your injuries, including:
- Medical bills for emergency treatment, hospitalization, reconstructive surgery and rehabilitative treatment
- Lost wages, future lost income during your recovery, and any reduction in your earning power
- Pain, suffering and emotional distress during the accident and in the future as a result of the long-term effects of your injuries
- Loss of consortium, which is the effect that your injuries may have on your spouse if you are now less capable of contributing to the household and engaging in marital relations
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a leading cause of car accidents, and beyond the thousands of people who are killed, many more see their lives changed permanently. Whether you are suing for the wrongful death of a loved one, or for catastrophic injuries you have suffered, the team at K&G is ready to begin work on your case. Contact a Miami drunk driving accident lawyer for an initial consultation to learn more about your right to compensation.
